TD Direct Investing Takes Trading to the Next Level with New Mobile Enhancements

As more Canadians choose to manage their investments online and via mobile device, online brokerages are keeping in step by introducing innovative mobile trading capabilities. Last week, TD Direct Investing (TDDI)  introduced two new enhancements – push notifications and multi-leg option orders – to the TD app, making TD the first of Canada's big five banks to offer these capabilities on a mobile platform.

These enhancements are part of TDDI's commitment to providing investors with powerful and intuitive trading tools both at home and on the go – one reason why the TD app is Canada's top rated financial app for iPhone and Android, according to App Annie.

Below is a detailed breakdown of the enhancements:

  1. Push notifications for price and volume alerts – TD DI clients can now take setting up their email alerts on WebBroker a step further with push notifications for mobile. Investors can set up notifications on the TD app to alert them when a security reaches a certain price, trading volume or Price/Earnings ratio.
  2. Multi-leg Option Orders – A powerful feature typically found only on sophisticated online platforms, providing multi-leg option orders on mobile is a big advantage for Canadian option traders, as they can use it to execute multi-legged strategies using one order and one base commission.

Investors who are interested in learning more about these and other features can view TD Direct Investing's online tutorial, or follow @TD_DirectInvest on Twitter.
